“Great stay!”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We decided on Sylvan Lake for our anniversary, since we didn't have the funds for Jasper or Banff. We picked the Lost Harbour Inn based on other reviews and we were not disappointed. Reservation online was a breeze, and they accommodated our request for an early check-in. The staff made helpful restaurant suggestions (there isn't a restaurant in the hotel) and they helped us find one that we'd heard about when we couldn't remember the name.

We splurged on the Jacuzzi Couples Suite and were really impressed with the size of the room, and the kitchenette (fridge, microwave, toaster, dishes, and sink). The jacuzzi was lovely, and we used it both nights.

We only had two complaints: first, we'd brought our own wine with us, but had neglected to bring a corkscrew, and the hotel didn't have one. We had to run out to a convenience store. Second, the room was very light in the morning (sun shining through the curtains), so it was difficult to sleep in. (The fire alarm going off at 6 am one morning also made it difficult! The staff handled it well, though.) It's a bit of a walk from the beach/boardwalk, but walking is good. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The jacuzzi suite was awesome!

Thank you for staying with us.

Yes the fire drill was unexpected. It was caused by a lighting strike or power surge they reported to us.

Sorry about the cork screw, as the suites should have one. Some time guests will take them and our cleaning staff must have missed that and we do have several in our prep kitchen and our front person should have know this.

On the light coming in. Yes the top valance on the window looks nice, but not great for keeping light out. We are having matching drapes made to replace the ones now and they will cover the whole window for sleeping.

Thank you and it was nice meeting you both.

Last minute booking. Polite 24/7 lobby.
Upstairs room, quiet even though they are renovating as there were new owners as of last fall.
Comfortable beds.
Note: Flat pillows and old mattress comforter pads.
Continental breakfast on main floor by lobby.
Close to town.
Right next to waterpark & go carts track (closed at this time of yr).
Nearby is the walkway they are finishing...good for walking or running by lake.
Would return if good rates again.
